He’s the biggest drug lord in the world, in my opinion. He’s the leader of the Sinaloa cartel. And just recently, we talked about this before the show, about four or five months ago his wife delivered twins in Los Angeles. And people are wondering if he’s the greatest drug lord in the world, why wasn’t his wife questioned or held at the hospital?
This is a rush transcript from “On the Record,” March 30, 2012.
GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Now, we have been telling you about this almost every night for three years — Mexico, no one is safe, now even the police. This week five policemen were gunned down at a party in Mexico. It happened in the city of Juarez right next door to El Paso, Texas. And like we keep telling you, Mexico’s deadly drug cartel violence is spilling over the border into the United States. So is anyone paying attention? Filmmaker Charlie Minn is. He just made a documentary called “Murder Capital of the World.”

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Just the amount of corruption has been there for decades. Sometimes the officers have to take bribes because that’s the only way to survive. You take the bribe or you are killed.

VAN SUSTEREN: Charlie Minn joins us. Nice to see you. I don’t know if the word “enjoy,” I don’t know how you can enjoy watching a horrible crisis right next door. How bad is it?
CHARLIE MINN, DIRECTOR, “MURDER CAPITAL OF THE WORLD”: It’s really bad, Greta. In 2010 there were more murders in Juarez than the 9/11 attacks. Since 2008, we have had over 10,000 murders in Juarez, which is 40 percent greater than both of our Middle East wars put together. Despite all that, President Obama is sitting around having a ham sandwich, watching all these innocent Mexico people being executed.
